The Vietnamese American young women and gender non-conforming participants in the inaugural class come from all over Orange County, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Taught by professional multimedia artists Ann Lê, Nguyên Lý, Tu Nguyễn, and Susie Thái, the participants have spent weekends over the last 4 months learning and creating a stunning body of photography, printmaking, video projection and animation work that explore themes of gender, family, immigration, mental health, socio-political and cultural identity.
The Project Fôtô program is a part of an ongoing Gallery Beyond Walls initiative from VAALA, and was made possible with support from the Garden Grove Community Foundation, Macy’s, Union Bank, as well as Black Umbrella. The exhibition is curated with direction from Program Director + Filmmaker Quyên Nguyễn-Lê and Public Artist + Architect James Đinh.
